Street art in South Yarra? It’s not the first thing to come to mind! While Windsor & Prahran get the glory as the edgier sections of Chapel Street, people would be surprised by what South Yarra has to offer. In between high fashion retailers, are pieces of art that deserve mention. Here they are.
Tom Gerrard Mural

To celebrate the reopening of Bailey Nelson on Chapel Street, Tom Gerrard painted a mural on the inside and outside of the store, and it’s everything a Gerrard mural ought to be.

Brad Eastman (aka Beastman) is one of Australia’s most recognised artists, commissioned in various countries across the globe to create unique and abstract murals. Geometric patterns pulled from nature and symbolic shapes are just a few components that make Beastman’s art so damn good. Spot this splash of cool on the corner of Chapel and Grey St (across the road from Abacus Bar & Kitchen, South Yarra).

The collaboration was a project put in motion by the Chapel Street Precinct Association and City of Stonnington to introduce more high quality and thought-provoking street art into the Precinct.

Check out the timelapse video, here, to see it come to life.

Dvate on Fitzgerald Street 

Bright and demanding attention, these small pieces make up an iconic corner on Chapel Street in South Yarra. Dvate is a Melbourne based artist whose position in the street art scene is well established and can be seen on walls, canvas and in magazines both locally and internationally.

Growing up in Melbourne, a stone’s throw from a railway station, he was instantly drawn to the colourful work along the suburban railway lines and became inspired to leave his own mark on society.
